Lark and Michael McCarley, Innkeepers, welcome you to Lovelace Manor Bed and Breakfast. Located in Lancaster, the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country, we are just minutes away from numerous historic sites, Amish farmlands, outlet shopping and abundant antiquing. Built in 1882, our home has been described by the Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County as one of the more elegant examples of the Second Empire style domestic architecture in the region. From the ornate porches with brackets and pendants, to the interior elements of 11-foot ceilings and etched glass doors, visitors have an opportunity to step back in time. As our guest, you are invited to enjoy complimentary refreshments in the Victorian parlor or on one of the porches. Or if you prefer, a relaxing game of billiards awaits you in the game room. We also provide a collection of books and videos for your enjoyment. And for the business traveler, we provide wireless internet access, telephones and a fax machine for your convenience. Each morning you will be treated to a hearty breakfast including fresh fruit juices, baked goods and hot entrees served in the dining room. We will be glad to accommodate any special dietary restrictions.
Located on the northeast corner of the house is the Althea room furnished with light pine and wicker. The soothing palette of creams and pastels suggest a peaceful atmosphere.

We stayed for 2 nights and found Lovelace Manor to be a wonderful home away from home. Our room was warm and inviting and the food was plentiful and delicious. You couldn't ask for better hosts. And, Lark can provide loads of information about the area.

Just as good the second visit.. Mike and Lark go out of their way to make your stay as memorable and enjoyable as possible. The hospitality is wonderful; the breakfasts make you want to stay for another morning: and the total ambiance encourages you to just move in. Thanks for a wonderful stay and we enjoyed visiting with the other guests during breakfast. I think we all wanted to just sit, talk and have another cup of your special coffee.

I took my sister to Lovelace Manor (Rose Room) for her birthday gift. We spent two nights in a place that was just wonderful! I Lovelace Manor and WOW!! what a wonderful experience! I spoke with Lark the first time and she was very pleasant, personable, helpful and I just felt very good about our conversation. I called again when I was sure of dates and spoke with Michael...again, he couldn't have been more helpful! My 3rd call was answered by Lark and I booked our stay. She gave me all kinds of helpful information and said she would have maps of out of the way places we might like to visit (and we did). She also booked seats for us to see NOAH at a discounted price. You are still always leery! We arrived to a warm welcome by Lark and Michael and were given a tour of their beautiful home. Our room was absolutely beautiful with a little sitting room to read. Everything you see on line is exactly what we experienced. Then there was breakfast! WOW again...it was simply delicious...both mornings! We met great people and shared in nice conversation not only with other guests, but with Lark and Michael. I would highly recommend Lovelace Manor, not only is it beautiful but Lark and Michael are by far, the best innkeepers I have ever experienced! Thank You

This was a stop on our way to another location for the weekend. We were very comfortable here, and Lark served one of the best breakfasts I've ever had -- I go to B&Bs pretty often, too.
